Arizona Cardinals
vs
St. Louis Rams
U of Phoenix Stadium | Sunday, Dec. 08 | 04:25 PM EST (FOX)

St. Louis Rams

    1. Kellen Clemens
    2. Kellen
      Clemens
      QB
    3. PASS YDS164
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Clemens threw for 218 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the 49ers last week. He's way off the fantasy radar.

    1. Zac Stacy
    2. Zac
      Stacy
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS63
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Stacy was able to play last week despite suffering a concussion two weeks ago. The Cardinals allow the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, but I'm still starting him.

    1. Chris Givens
    2. Chris
      Givens
      WR
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

    The Cardinals have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers. Stay away from Givens.

    1. Austin Pettis
    2. Austin
      Pettis
      WR
    3. REC YDS35
    4. REC TD0

    Pettis cannot be trusted against an Arizona defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Tavon Austin
    2. Tavon
      Austin
      WR
    3. REC YDS14
    4. REC TD0

    Last week proved that Austin cannot count on the fluke big play to be productive every single week.

    1. Jared Cook
    2. Jared
      Cook
      TE
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD1

    Cook had three catches for 49 yards last week. Believe it or not, the Cardinals allow by far the most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. Greg Zuerlein
    2. Greg
      Zuerlein
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG2

    Zuerlein made both of his field-goal attempts last week and is 19-for-21 on the season.

    1. St. Louis Rams
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Cardinals offense is clicking of late, and that should be enough to convince fantasy owners to stay away from the Rams this week.

Arizona Cardinals

    1. Carson Palmer
    2. Carson
      Palmer
      QB
    3. PASS YDS284
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Palmer had his third straight productive game, throwing for 302 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He's a low-end QB1 against the Rams.

    1. Rashard Mendenhall
    2. Rashard
      Mendenhall
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS70
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Andre Ellington is likely to return from a knee injury this week, but Mendenhall should get the lion's share of the touches. That's great news given that the Rams allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. Andre Ellington
    2. Andre
      Ellington
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS38
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS43
    6. REC TD0

    Ellington is likely to make his return from a knee injury on Sunday. The matchup with the Rams is great, but he's a risky play given that we can't know how large a role he will have coming off an injury.

    1. Larry Fitzgerald
    2. Larry
      Fitzgerald
      WR
    3. REC YDS102
    4. REC TD1

    Fitz had five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown last week and has five scores in his last five games.

    1. Michael Floyd
    2. Michael
      Floyd
      WR
    3. REC YDS80
    4. REC TD1

    Floyd had five receptions for 99 yards and a score last week. He now has 18 catches for 396 yards and two touchdowns in his last three games.

    1. Andre Roberts
    2. Andre
      Roberts
      WR
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Roberts remains the odd-man out in Arizona, catching just four passes for 29 yards last week.

    1. Rob Housler
    2. Rob
      Housler
      TE
    3. REC YDS50
    4. REC TD0

    Housler had three catches for 21 yards last week and is not an advisable play this week.

    1. Jay Feely
    2. Jay
      Feely
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    Feely did not have a field-goal attempt last week. He is 22-for-24 on the year.

    1. Arizona Cardinals
    2. PTS ALLOWED13
    3. SACKS5
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Cardinals did well, all things considered, in holding the Eagles to 24 points. They are a very strong play this week.
